Someone, somewhere, at some point in time once said that all good things must come to an end. For fans of the Star Wars Battlefront series, 2005 saw Star Wars Battlefront II mark the end of not just a good thing, but a great thing. Of course, since that point EA and DICE have picked up the baton with the attempt of bringing one of the most beloved shooters in the history of gaming to the masses once more, albeit in a somewhat modernised state. But it’s fair to say that things haven’t quite been the same since venturing back into the galaxy far far away. Does EA’s second attempt bring the experience fans have been craving for, or are we in for a long ride with a disappointing shooter? I [...]

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series – Episode 5 “Don’t Stop Believin’” Review
And now, the end is near, it’s time for the Guardians to face their final curtain in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. It’s been a rollercoaster ride right from the opener, without ever reaching great heights or massive lows along the way. Could the finale, “Don’t Stop Believin’”, buck the trend and deliver a climax to remember? Or should it bit written off as one of the rare mediocre series of the Telltale catalogue?

Your Toy Review
I’ve a childhood memory of two large teddy bears as the first toys I ever received as presents. They were huge, and I would wrestle them, throw them down the stairs and make them be prisoners of war. I was a disturbed child I think. What happened to these types of toys I wonder? Some must get passed down to other disturbed children in other families, some are destroyed by angry dogs and others just simply get lost. But what happens if they seek you out in your nightmares? Well, if that sounds horrible…welcome to Your Toy.

Need For Speed Payback Review
The latest entry in EA's popular Need for Speed franchise is the appropriately named Payback, which traces the exploits of a crew of three street racers. These are Tyler, the self proclaimed "best racer in the city", who will take on responsibility for race and drag events. He is joined by Mac, who takes on off road and drift events, and Jess, a hard nosed female racer who participates in "Runner" events - which largely revolve around escaping from the police. Coming from Ghost Games, who brought us the last entry in the series, Payback has a lot to live up to if it is going to match the highlights of the series. The question is, does it do just that, or is it left spinning its wheels [...]

911 Operator Review
As much as I admire the guys and girls who make up our police force, the ambulance service and the fire brigade, I have to admit to never having been envious of their jobs. I certainly don't have the patience, the caring nature or the bravery required to be a good police officer, medic or firefighter. I'd much prefer to be sitting in the safety of the confines of an office taking the calls and directing those on the front line to various crimes, medical situations and out of control fires. In fact, the role of an emergency operator suits me right down to the ground.

WWE 2K18 Review
As a fan of wrestling since way back when the WWE shared its name with the panda foundation, I’ve seen the highs of the Attitude Era and a fair few lows since then. The same goes for the video games based on professional wrestling, with recent yearly offerings from 2K and Visual Concepts dipping in quality. WWE 2K17 was massively disappointing in a lot of areas, which almost guarantees that the latest title, WWE 2K18, will be an improvement, right? The developers have learnt from their mistakes... surely?

Super Lucky’s Tale Review
Burrowed amongst the glitz and glamour of Microsoft’s 2017 E3 press conference was a promising new 3D platformer that left Xbox fans with an intrigued sense of anticipation for the arrival of a small hero, and the adventures that he would pursue. With November finally arriving we now have the chance to play as our furry friend and see if the excitement that surrounded the game's E3 debut was short-lived, or whether it has improved with the release of the full experience.

The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk Review
Earlier this year, The Inner World made its jump from PC to Xbox One to great acclaim from the curious gamers who gave the zany characters and narrative a chance to impress. It was a jolly good point-and-click adventure and developers Studio Fizbin revealed plans to deliver a sequel to the tale. Now those plans have come to fruition, with The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk arriving on console. Is it bigger, better, and more worthy of the higher price tag it possesses? Or should the quirky world of Asposia be forgotten and laid to rest?

Sonic Forces Review
Sonic Forces is the second Sonic game to be released in 2017, following the release of the well-received Sonic Mania back in August. Whereas Mania focused on the 2D games of Sonic’s glory days, Sonic Forces keeps the series going forward featuring both Classic and Modern Sonic in a trend started back with Sonic Generations. Can Sonic Forces buck the declining trend and feature Modern Sonic in a good Sonic game?
